The Great Disconnect

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

I keep seeing people post questions asking if AI is going to destroy humanity. I don't think so personally. I think it will lead up to a great migration away from the online space due to the absurd number of bots littering the internet right now.  The dead internet theory as per wikipedia states that: "The dead Internet theory is an online conspiracy theory that asserts that the Internet now cons » Continue Reading

FML, and Fuck dealing with HMRC

Category: Life

I have been having issues with my household's Universal credit claim for the last 2+ months, just trying to get the help we are entitled to.

For my Friend

Category: Life

Recently I was informed that a friend of mine from Edinburgh had passed away. he had been ill for the entire time I knew him. Over 10 years at this point. And it was a miracle that he had held out for as long as he did. The only positive about his passing is that he is no longer in pain. I hadn't heard fro » Continue Reading

If Ubisoft gets their way, I fear for gaming

Category: Games

"Ubisoft Exec Says Gamers Need To Get Comfortable With "Not Owning Your Games" Me: Well that exec can "Get comfortable" with gamers not buying their games. This kind of anti-consumer shit is why piracy is on the rise, and some of the most successful indie studios right now have DRM free options, physical editions, and consumer friendly practices. » Continue Reading

Emulators?

Category: Games

What are your views on emulators? I know there are some pretty consistent attacks against emulation from companies out there and even questions of their legality circulating the media. Even Nintendo making it increasingly more difficult to be able to legally obtain the bios data for the Switch just to prevent "Piracy". » Continue Reading

Life's been interesting

So over the last week I've been quite sick with some post flight lurgy mixed with an ear infection that migrated to my chest.  I'm over the worst of it now, but for about a day I couldn't even stand under my own strength. » Continue Reading

Why do Open worlds kinda suck now?

Category: Games

The open world game is a bit of an interesting batch, even if most of the actual games are as interesting as watching a gelatinous blob simmer in the summer heat. Most of them these days follow the Ubisoft method of creating a large detailed world and then just try to fill it with as much busy work as humanly possible.

The Post-Dad game

Category: Games

I've been consuming a lot more gaming content recently to help guide my attention to where some of the discourse is headed so I'm no longer just separated from it all.
